GOD WILL HELP YOU THROUGH! 

 

 

Psalm 121

1 A song of ascents. I lift up my eyes to the hills-- where does my help come from?

2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip-- he who watches over you will not slumber;

4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD watches over you-- the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

6 the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD will keep you from all harm-- he will watch over your life;

8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

O! Lord, I lift my eyes to You who made the heaven and the earth and pray that You may watch over my trip. How comforting it is O! Lord to know Your promise that You watch over me day and night; that You will keep me from all harm and You will watch over my life. Watch over my going out and coming in on this trip I am making.

 

Psalm 16

1 A miktam of David. Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge.

Lord, I thank You for You will keep me safe for I have taken refuge in You.

 

2 I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing."

5 LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.

6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.

Yes! Lord, all good things come from You and You are ‘the good’

I cherish most!

 

7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.

O! Lord how I thank You for You counsel and instruct me day and night.It is in You I always trust.

 

8 I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,

10 because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.

11 You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Dear Lord, I have set You always before me. You are ever near to me.Lord, let me never be afraid or shaken. I thank You for You will not abandon me... I will joyfully walk my path You have set before me and I will rest secure. Let me enjoy Your presence always, even moment by moment.

 

Psalm 27

OF David. The LORD is my light and my salvation-- whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life-- of whom shall I be afraid?

Lord, be my light and my salvation. Let me not fear nor be afraid.

 

2 When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.

3 Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.

Lord, let me be confident in You. Let me not fear anyone or anything.

 

4 One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.

Lord, help me to keep close to you in my thoughts always that I will know Your greatness and power.

 

5 For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.

Thank You Lord, when I am with You and You are with me, You will keep me safe.

 

6 Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD.

7 Hear my voice when I call, O LORD; be merciful to me and answer me.

Lord, I thank you for when I call You will answer me. I will be glad and praise You with all my heart. 

Psalm 31

1 For the director of music. A psalm of David. In you, O LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame; deliver me in your righteousness.

2 Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.

3 Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me.

Dear Lord, turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.

 

4 Free me from the trap that is set for me, for you are my refuge.

5 Into your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O LORD, the God of truth.

6 I hate those who cling to worthless idols; I trust in the LORD.

7 I will be glad and rejoice in your love, for you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul.

8 You have not handed me over to the enemy but have set my feet in a spacious place.

9 Be merciful to me, O LORD, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and my body with grief.

10 My life is consumed by anguish and my years by groaning; my strength fails because of my affliction, and my bones grow weak.

Yes! Lord, into your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O LORD, the God of truth. I trust in the LORD. You have not handed me over to the enemy but have set my feet in a spacious place.

 

Be merciful to me, O LORD, for I am in distress: my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and my body with grief. My life is consumed by anguish and my years by groaning, my strength fails because of my affliction, and my bones grow weak. I will be glad and rejoice in Your love, for You have seen my affliction and known the anguish of my soul.

 

11 Because of all my enemies, I am the utter contempt of my neighbors; I am a dread to my friends-- those who see me on the street flee from me.

12 I am forgotten by them as though I were dead; I have become like broken pottery.

13 For I hear the slander of many; there is terror on every side; they conspire against me and plot to take my life.

14 But I trust in you, O LORD; I say, "You are my God."

Yes! Lord, I trust in You. You are my God.

 

15 My times are in your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me.

16 Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love.

Yes! Lord, my times are in your hand. Let Your face shine on me. Save me from my troubles because You love me.

 

17 Let me not be put to shame, O LORD, for I have cried out to you;but let the wicked be put to shame and lie silent in the grave.

18 Let their lying lips be silenced, for with pride and contempt they speak arrogantly against the righteous.

19 How great is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you, which you bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in you.

20 In the shelter of your presence you hide them from the intrigues of men; in your dwelling you keep them safe from accusing tongues.

21 Praise be to the LORD, for he showed his wonderful love to me when I was in a besieged city.

22 In my alarm I said, "I am cut off from your sight!" Yet you heard my cry for mercy when I called to you for help.

Lord, How great is Your goodness, which You have stored up for those who fear You. You hide me in Your shelter. You have shown Your wonderful love to me.

 

23 Love the LORD, all his saints! The LORD preserves the faithful, but the proud he pays back in full.

24 Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.

Lord, I love You. I hope in You. Make me strong in my heart by Your Spirit.


Psalm 91

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

Lord, let me live close to You and make me my shelter. Let me find my rest in Your presence.

 

2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."

Lord, be my refuge in times of trouble for I trust in You.

 

3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.

Lord, save me from all evil that surrounds me.

 

4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

Lord, cover me under Your strong arms You only are my refuge.

 

5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.

O Lord, take away all my fears of troubles, distress or disease, even of darkness.

 

7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.

8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.

Lord, there is trouble and dangers all around me. Keep me safe. Lord, I pray.

 

9 If you make the Most High your dwelling-- even the LORD, who is my refuge--

10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.

Lord, I have made You my refuge and I want to be with You always. Keep me from all harm, danger and even disasters.

 

11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;

12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

Lord, I thank You for You have commanded Your angels to guard me and hold me up in their hands. Even though I cannot see them, I believe Your word. Keep me safe.

 

14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."

Yes, Lord, I love You with all my heart. I acknowledge You in all my ways. Hear my prayers and cry. Answer me. Deliver me from all my troubles. Save me and satisfy me, Lord.


John 14

1 "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God ; trust also in me.

2 In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

4 You know the way to the place where I am going."

Lord, I trust in God and in You. Do not let my heart be troubled in any situation, however difficult or dangerous. Thank You Lord for You have gone to prepare a place for me in heaven and You will come and take me home.


Hebrews 7

25 Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

O! How I praise and thank You Lord, for You are able to save me from all fears and troubles. I come to You. I thank You for You are interceding for me in heaven before the throne of God. Amen.
